Aveley FC feel the force against Canvey Island

Canvey Island 5
FA CUP: JAY Curran claimed a hat-trick of penalties and the impressive Simon Thomas a brace as the Gulls flew into the next round at lower league Aveley.
It looked like it would be a far from straight forward afternoon for Danny Heale’s in-form Ryman Premier side when Ross Wall side-footed the ball under the advancing Josh Vickers to give their Ryman One North hosts a 12th minute lead.
But they drew level from the penalty spot midway through the half when Adam Flanagan was adjudged to have fouled Thomas from behind, and Curran slammed the resulting spot kick down the middle and past Jack Giddens to level.
